“Decadent night life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

As a Miami Beach local, this place is still my go-to spot when entertaining out-of-towner friends from big cities - New York, LA, San Francisco!

Yes, it is expensive...$20 drinks at a minimum, $8 for a small bottle of generic water (not Vos) but the vibe and energy once inside is like no other. The servers and bouncers (for the most part) are smokin' hot - guys and girls. As shallow as this may sound, if you're having to fork out that much money for drinks, it may as well be to good-looking people.

It's certainly an experience to go to this night club. Regardless of what night you go, it is always packed. Standing from the upper level of the club, one cannot help but feel that "this truly is the land of beautiful people!".

We went most recently on a Saturday night - this is the spot in SoBe. Yes, it is hard to get in- you do have to know people unless you're ready to spend thousands for bottle service. I would highly recommend getting bottle service especially if you're with a group of people- or as a visitor, talk to your hotel's concierge and have them help you set it up in order to avoid having to stand in line.

The laser show is very cool - the neon lights are trippy. They made it rain confetti around midnight - the contortionist girls on their respective stages were amazing (whomever choreographs for them is brilliant). The club also handed out neon sticks sometime after 1 AM, and added more to the already hoppin' scene. It is truly a feast for the senses...the sights and sounds are indescribably sexy- you just have to be there!

The glass stairwell in the middle of the club serves as a catwalk for club-goers to be seen in all their "club glory"! :) Fascinating place to people-watch; interesting to see quite an international crowd in one place with their respective fashion senses: although short skirts and tight dresses seem to be the common denominator. Ha!

My only wish is for people to dance more like they do in Vegas clubs - am not sure if the dance floor was too crowded but there were very few dancers...mostly people just standing, having a great time (popping bottles of expensive champagne) but perhaps not enough space to really get their moves on.

If you're looking for a mellow inexpensive nightclub, this isn't for you; however, if you're looking for a great time and can drop a bunch of money in an upscale nightclub...definitely come here even for just one night of debauchery! A place like Liv is just as good as the attitude that you bring in with you...

The top DJs in the industry can be there at any given night- check with the local listing.

“Waste of time!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Unless u feel the need to be completely demoralised, do not even bother entering this club. Bouncers-on a total power trip letting in whoever they wish to pick and choose. I went with my boyfriend (both dressed well) on a Sunday night...hip hop which my boyfriend and I love. We noticed a few people going in round he side , not assuming to be let in I politely asked the bouncer whether we could go in next, to which he replied 'ma'm this does not concern you,your entrance is down there, to the side' i have never been made to feel so small. I am the least racist person in the world but unless u r black, or prepared to spend hundreds of dollars tipping the egotistical bouncers on the door! then do not even bother, spend your hard earnt money else where

“Fun Club! Terrible Service!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My husband I went to LIV on a busy Saturday night. We dropped the money for a 2 bottle minimum to sit at a table. Danny Avila was the famous DJ that night. The crowd was good looking, the music was great and the light show was amazing. The only downside was the attitude of our waitress, Lindsay. Seemed like she wasn't thrilled that we were only a 1K minimum table. She took my husband's credit card, dropped off the 2 bottles of vodka at our table and I never saw her again. Making me a couple of drinks throughout the night would have been nice or at least make sure we were doing okay. It wasn't like we were sitting there FOR FREE! We paid top dollar to be at the club and for table service. An attitude adjustment should be made. There are plenty of fun clubs in Miami that would be happy to take my money and I'm sure the waitress would be happy to get a $200 tip to just drop bottles of booze off.

“Yes, you can get in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

YES, you can get in, on a Saturday Night, for free, without a promoter, without bottle service, without being 5'10 and a sexy european model.

How to do it?
1. Get their early (10pm)
2. Look your best (obviously)
3. Be front row at the velvet ropes
4. Talk to the guys around you, because they WILL offer to pay your entrance if you get them in!

I'm 5'0 and decent looking asian girl. I cam with three other girls about the same as me. WE read reviews and said "F it, lets try and get in? Well, we did, on a SATURDAY night, when all other reviewers wrote that it would be almost impossible with out a promoter or bottle service!

Follow the instructions above and you will DEF get in!

The club it self? (and my review is based completely on alcohol (i don't pop molly =P )
AMAZING, the energy, the lights, the people. beautiful people all around you, amazing light show, amazing DJ, Its a must go on any girls weekend, and I completely would do it all over again.!!

side note:
We also went on Hip Hop sunday, completely different experience. NO line, it was a hip hop crowd, not my scene. We only went there because there was no where else to party on a sunday night.
